2014 Update: The U.S. Forest Service has reopened Eagle Rock and Security Risk climbing areas in Boulder Canyon which have been closed since Feb. 1 to protect golden eagles during their nesting season. Blob Rock and Bitty Buttress areas remain CLOSED.
Each year, Boulder Canyon raptor nesting area closures are in effect starting February 1st through July 31st at Eagle Rock, Security Risk, Blob Rock, and Bitty Buttress. However, the area is monitored and closures are periodically lifted early (due to no active nest, nest site failure, or early fledging). This monitoring program is a partnership with the Forest Service Boulder Ranger District, Boulder Climbing Community, and Audubon Society. Check back periodically during times of closure for updates. More info at www.fs.usda.gov/recmain/arp/recreation.
This information is a public crowdsourcing effort between the Access Fund,
and Mountain Project. You should confirm closures, restrictions, and/or related dates.
The crux is technical face moves up and past a thin flake layback. Cool route and more pleasant way to reach the upper section of "Lovely to See You".
Start just right of Threshold Of A Dream in a wide corner system....step right and clip the first bolt..angle right on good holds to the flake and then power up to a good stance. Clip the last two bolts and then reach the anchors.
Seven clips and purple camalot for the upper move to the anchor.

My least favorite of the new routes- some fun climbing, but a lot of scaling rock and lichen still. Whenever I smeared I sheared off little flakes and skidded my feet. Anyone climbing theis should take a brush and scrub on the way back down, particularly near the crux where it was hard to scrub on the way up.... The climb will probably improve with ascents, but it's still going to be a little 'directionless.'
